As for waiting in line for a Supercharging station....Tesla HQ hasn't installed more and people just wait?
It's hardly a wait. A couple of minutes at worst. But there can be a line around lunch time and people respect it. Also, Tesla is doing a huge promo event there so there are a few company cars charging as well.
She just drove past the small line. She also did one of worst parking jobs I've seen. What pissed me and the couple of people behind me off was her attitude.
Also,I don't think they can install more for now. Real estate + they're net neutral solar and each supercharger stall literally dumps about a neighborhoods worth of power into the cars. It's not a joke and remotely like a chademo or any other charger that the Leaf or a Volt or an i3 use. It's also a super elegant cable with just the positive, ground, and serial data connectors.
They're super expensive and really there's no need for more. They have Fremont and Mountain View near Google and several more on the way up to the North Bay. This was an anomaly.
My worry is that used Teslas are drawing in the douches now. It used to be everyone with a Tesla was a nice person with a decent job (or a Woodside or Atherton housewife), now not so much the case because many are sub 50k.
The two people behind me were both in Model X P90Ds, this bitch was in a Model S 60. I know it sounds condescending, but I don't care. Be respectful in all walks of life and I'll respect you back.
